RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#5 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Sun Jul 14, 2019 9:55 pm

Your favorite offseason debate is back by popular demand!
Thanks to everyone who voted last go around Im excited to see where the 2nd annual edition ends up.

Here's the Rules:
-Vote ONE player per poll. You'll be able to change your vote just like last year for those indecisive folks.
-The criteria of ranking the players is YOUR OWN. The whole point of bringing this to the GB is to attract the widest amount of votes/perspectives on the game as possible to form a true consensus. Some people value shooting over defense, team success over indivdual prowess etc. I want to bake all that in to this poll set no matter how chaotic.
-Each poll a player will win and then be taken out of the field. There will be 25 polls in all.
-There are only 10 possible poll options so I will start with the 10 guys who I personally believe will round out the top 10 in most people's eyes.
-As each poll commences I ask you to COMMENT IN THE THREAD your vote for who should be added in the next poll. There will be a large list of players yet to be added to the field below that you can look over to make your vote. I will tally up the votes in the comments at the end of each poll and add the winner accordingly. For example, if you want Marc Gasol added in the next poll just comment "Marc Gasol" or "Gasol".
-If a poll is overwhelmingly skewed towards one guy I will try, time willing, to edit it early and move on to the next one.
-If there is a tie in the poll. There will be a run-off poll created with just the tying parties to determine a winner. The losers of the runoff will then be added back into the field of 10 for the next poll.
-Feel free to ask any questions via pm or comment
-Feel Free to comment on your reasoning for a pick and why

THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING!!!!

Harden pretty easily to me, though it wouldn’t surprise me if Davis outperformed him this year. He’s been a top 2 regular season player for the past 5 seasons, and his drop-off in the playoffs is overstated (Curry should be getting similar criticism, although neither “chokes”...they are both very good postseason players, but a notch below their MVP-caliber regular season selves - mostly due to a drop in efficiency)

If Durant was healthy he'd already be picked by now the fact is he isn't and will probably miss the whole year so by default he's not getting voted for

How on Earth the player which 95% will not play a single game in 2019-20 season should be voted as 2019-20 fifth best player?!?

Vote: Jokic
Nominate: Irving


Then why is he even on the poll in the first place?

Gotta be AD. 3rd all-time in PER behind Jordan and LeBron. 4th all-time in playoff PER behind Jordan, LeBron, and Mikan. One of the 5 best defenders in the league. Just entering his prime at 26. And now finally on a team where he can flourish. Closer to #1 than #6 IMO.

in that case take him off the poll, but if he's considered at all, he needs to already be voted in.
